Advice Opportunity Support

The Institute

The Institute of Barristers’ Clerks was founded in 1922. Our mission is to drive and demonstrate the excellence of the UK’s clerking profession though supporting the development and interests of our members and helping them uphold the high standards of the bar.

Our Members

Our members are clerks across the whole of the UK, working in every area of the bar, from commercial litigation to criminal and family law. Connecting them and giving them the opportunity to swap experiences and share knowledge is a key part of what we do.

Our Work

In addition to representing the best interests of our members, we also encourage new people from diverse backgrounds to consider a career as a barristers’ clerk; it’s an interesting and varied profession with truly exciting careers prospects.
